[audio]Books Sandwiched In: What Then Must We Do? - Knox County Public Library

[movies]Ed Schultz Forgets Bill Clinton Was President
Ed Schultz is MSNBC's resident Sean Hannity impersonator -- loud and proud in blaming the other side, in this case Republicans, for every problem including income inequality. But standing before a line graph clearly showing the gap grew the fastest during Bill Clinton's terms, Schultz can't see it.

[audio]Blue-Collar Blues: Robert Lawrence Discusses Trade and US Income Inequality - Peterson Institute for International Economics

[texts]Critique of Piketty's "Capital in the Twenty-first Century" - Sam Vaknin
In his programmatic and data-laden tome, "Capital in the Twenty-first Century" (2014), Thomas Piketty makes several assertions, two of which merit a closer look: (1) That r (the return on capital) is, in the long-run always greater than g (the growth of the real economy), thus enriching the rich; and (2) that inherited wealth tends to create a "patrimonial" form of capitalism, akin to the aristocracy in the French and British ancient regimes...

[audio]The Beauty Premium -- Groks Science Show 2014-12-17 - Chenan Zhang
It might not come as a big surprise that those among us who are gifted with physical attractiveness also benefit in many other ways, from being perceived as more capable, more likeable, and trustworthy, to ultimately earning a higher average income--this effect has been dubbed the “beauty premium”. What’s interesting however, is figuring out what exactly drives this effect: could family background, personality, choice of occupation, or grooming habits account for this phenomenon? Today’s...
